Christopher Slaymaker is potent contemporary painter. His work contains strong gestural forms combined with abstract dream-space, rendered with rich dynamic brushwork. Slaymaker’s approach to his subjects is gentle and focused. The figures that star in Slaymaker’s autobiographical paintings exhibit a blooming self-awareness and a deep delight. Friends, favorite dogs, and the artist himself all play a role in the story of spiritual searching in his paintings.

He grew up in the Shenandoah Valley of Virginia. He was a very active youth participating in many sports.

I was born in Wolfville, NS to James and Elizabeth Sloan. I have one brilliant brother who is four years my junior. I graduated from Mount Saint Vincent University with a Bachelor of Arts in English. I love working with vibrant colours and telling stories that help children understand the world around them. I am an avid egalitarian. I am currently working on being admitted to Bachelor of Journalism program at Dalhousie University here in Halifax. From the age of eight or nine I knew I wanted to be an author. My mom, my brother and I used to watch “All Creatures Great and Small” in the morning before school and I fell in love with James Harriott. I too wanted to become a veterinarian and an author. Eventually however, I scraped the vet idea but the writing stuck. I spent hours and hours writing and creating stories – I guess, not much has changed since I was that little girl, sitting on the floor, telling stories to myself. The only difference now is that I tell the stories to many more people.
